Page Breaks

Is there an EASY way to get page breaks?  We have tables that are breaking in the middle of a row and don't want
that to happen.  Also I have blockquote that has programlisting for coding information and do not want that
to break in the middle of the block.

How can I get soft page breaks easy without going in and putting para, para, para, to get onto another page?

I am not an experienced user of DocBook at all, just muddling my way through to get the document out there.


Thank you,

[ANN] Attractively priced XMLmind DocBook Editor; free Personal Edition

XMLmind is happy to announce three new products: XMLmind DITA Editor[1],
XMLmind DocBook Editor[2], XMLmind XHTML Editor[3].
These products are attractively priced, “special editions” of
XMLmind XML Editor v7. Because they focus on a single class of
documents, these specialized editors are slightly faster and simpler
to use than XMLmind XML Editor. More information in
"Which editor to choose?"[4].

A Personal License[5] is now available for XMLmind XML Editor,
XMLmind DITA Editor, XMLmind DocBook Editor and XMLmind XHTML Editor.
This makes our four editors free to use by many persons and
organizations. More information in "Which license to choose?"[6].

The Personal Editions of XMLmind XML Editor, XMLmind DITA Editor,
XMLmind DocBook Editor and XMLmind XHTML Editor may be freely
downloaded from this page[7].

New version 7.0 also has substantial enhancements and a number of bug
fixes. All these enhancements aim to make our XML editors simpler and
more straightforward to use.

Recursive use of elements <option> and <optional>

In docbook 4.x it was possible to use <optional> in a recursive way, eg: 
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-createtable.html or 
https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/sql-select.html. Optional 
elements often are only valid under the additional demand, that they are 
part of another optional element. The same holds true for arguments of 
commands or procedures.

We try to upgrade to docbook 5.x, but the schema doesn't allow the 
recursive use of <option> and <optional>. Do you have an advice how to 
express such situations? Do you have plans to modify the docbook 5 
schema to allow recursive use of the two elements?

Kind Regards

DocBook TC meeting moved to 22 June

Actually, it turns out that I too have a conflict for the 15th, so based 
on the responses I have received, I'm moving the meeting to 22nd June. 
Hope the late notice doesn't inconvenience anyone.  I'll send out the 
agenda next week.
